Rescue USD opens kindergarten registration
Rescue Union School District welcomes regular kindergarten, junior (transitional) kindergarten, new student registration and transfer requests for the 2013-2014 school year. Registration will begin Feb. 1.
Enrollment packets and transfer request forms will be available to parents at all school sites beginning Monday, Jan 28.
Students must be 5 years of age on or before Oct. 1, 2013 to enter kindergarten. Students must be 5 on or before Dec. 2, 2013 to be eligible for the junior kindergarten program. Priority for junior kindergarten will be given to students with their fifth birthdays between Oct. 2 and Dec. 2, 2013; however, students who turn 5 between Dec. 3, 2013, and March 1, 2014, are eligible to participate in the junior kindergarten as they turn 5. These students will be put on a waiting list in order of birth date and placed on a space available basis.
The following documentation is required for registration: an immunization record, county Certificate of Live Birth (with county seal), proof of district residency (escrow papers, telephone or utility bill, rental agreement). If applicable, signed intradistrict or interdistrict transfer forms and current court orders regarding custody must also be turned in with packets. Bring in original documents and the school will make copies. Registration packets will only be accepted with all required documentation and forms. It is not necessary for immunizations to be complete at the time of registration. Copies will be made of current immunization records at registration and again as completed before the child starts school.
